Robinson’s be Natural Orange & Passionfruit Cordial (Sainsbury’s)
This is a new idea from Robinsons and is an all natural fruit cordial. That means that there are no artificial colours or flavourings, and that the ingredients are completely naturally sourced.
I really like the combination of orange and passionfruit, the two flavours complement each other well. The orange is the first taste, and then the passionfruit settles in. For me this tasted very different to the cordials I usually drink, as I have been having the sugar free and they are just so noticeably different. With the sugar free they tend to be sweeter, but the sweetness stops quite quickly and there is very little after taste. This cordial definitely leaves a gentle passionfruit sugary flavour in the mouth. It is a very refreshing drink, and I do like the concept of it being all natural.
One thing about the ingredients though is that it means that once open, it needs to be stored in the fridge. The bottle is slimmer than a regular bottle so that it will fit better in the fridge door. I am having my second glass now, and I just can’t remember if I put the bottle in the fridge or in the cupboard – it is no use, I’m going to have to go and check!
